Two Poems [with audio], Nicholas Samaras | World Literature Today

I must thank JT for planting the idea in my head to pay special tribute to a superb Greek poet, Nicholas Samaras.

Nicholas Samaras is from Patmos, Greece (the “Island of the Apocalypse”), and at the time of the Greek Junta (“Coup of the Generals”) was brought in exile to be raised further in America. He’s lived in Greece, England, Wales, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Germany, Yugoslavia, Jerusalem, thirteen states in America, and he writes from a place of permanent exile. Currently, he is completing a book of poetry and a memoir of his childhood years living underground. His four poems appear on pages 38–39 of the print edition, and he was also featured in the March 2009 issue of WLT.
